Yes, and I now make use of this list while eventually adding some more
recipients; this was one of the first PRQ that happened after my
promotion and I admit having failed in that way. Note however that
discussions on aur-requests miss a thing: every other users involved in
the package than the maintainer. And for that matter comments on the
packages are the only sensible thing, so they should always be checked.

Also, my concern was not really about votes, it’s about notifications of
the users: when a package is deleted, notifications subscriptions are
discarded and the users only get notified of deletion without even
knowing why (granted, they can then go to the aur-requests archives, but
that’s sub-optimal), while when merging notifications subscriptions are
transferred and (I think that, not sure if I remember well) users get
notified of a merge instead of pure deletion.

Anyway, no one died because of this…

Regards,
Bruno
